CCTV footage of the two suspects ? known by their aliases Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov ? shows them as they arrive and travel around Salisbury on Sunday 4 March. Images of a specially made model of the counterfeit perfume bottle are also being issued as detectives from the Counter Terrorism Policing Network continue with their investigation.Officers are still appealing to anyone who may have seen either of the two men in the UK between 2-4 March, or anyone who may have seen the counterfeit ?Nina Ricci? perfume box or bottle that was eventually recovered from Charlie Rowley?s address in Muggleton Road in July. Deputy Assistant Commissioner Dean Haydon, Senior National Coordinator for UK Counter Terrorism Policing said: ?Since we, alongside the CPS, announced details of the two suspects in September, our investigation has continued at pace. ?We remain as determined as ever to identify and bring to justice all those responsible for the reckless acts that left four people critically ill and, tragically, saw Dawn Sturgess lose her life. ?We are progressing a number of active lines of enquiry but one of the key things we are still to identify is where the counterfeit perfume bottle was between the time we think it was discarded on the afternoon of 4 March, to when Charlie Rowley says he found it on 27 June. If you think you saw the pink box or bottle anywhere in the Salisbury area during that time, then please get in touch with us.? Picture: Universal News And sport (Europe) 22/11/2018
